1960s Poseidon Intaglio Signet Ring
DATE: Vintage, c.1960
This cool intaglio ring depicts the ancient deity Poseidon (or Neptune if you're Roman). He has been modelled in the ancient style, with trident in hand, although this ring is no where near that old and, somewhat unusually, the intaglio has been hand-painted in gold - which has the effect of making the Sea God much more visible. The panel is green glass, in the style of the 18th and 19th Century Tassie seals. Modelled in 14k gold throughout.
